Ghost Kitchens

Thoughts on these?
I've never tried one, at least not that I'm aware of. Maybe that's the point.
I assume anything that is exclusively delivery-based inherently has to be one, right?

    I was curious one day so I ordered a smash burger from a ghost kitchen.

    Burgers were actually really good, proper smash burgers. Fries were dogshit trash though.

    Most ghost kitchens have been absolutely mid though.

    As long as they're licensed and inspected, I don't see the problem but most are really expensive considering the food you get.

    I think there's potential for the idea but don't know how well it would work in our fricked up neoliberal economy.

    Like on the one hand it's a great idea allowing anyone to cook and serve out of the comfort of their own home but on the otherhand the way our economy works means its going to be primarily out of warehouse kitchens. Then to expand on that the idea of warehouse kitchens for delivery is a great idea but unfortunately is rife for exploitation through the gig economy and cheap labour.

          Of course they can't. They'd need to pass health inspections and shit, right?
          Like yeah, people can sell food under the table over Facebook, whatever. But if they're on a delivery app they've gotta be legit a place of business.

            It wouldn't matter anyway, the most important part is that there's just no competing with warehouse kitchens.

      theres no way for a restaraunt to go on the delivery apps without a license

    I do not order food as I am not a poor person/moron, but I think it's rather duplicitous to operate a "restaraunt" that simply exists to monopolize the front page of food delivery.

        The idea is that you "own" a dozen restaurants that spread out over multiple options and/or clog up a singular option without the customer knowing. It's borderline false advertising.

          >"own"
          So you actually lease the restaurants?
          >without the customer knowing
          All the delivery apps have the address of the restaurant. If you choose not to check, that's on you.
          >spread out over multiple options
          So if I have the ingredients to make burgers, italian and chinese food, I'm not allowed to sell them under different restaurant names which would better market them? Who wants to buy chinese from Mario's burgers and chinese?

            NTA but what actually happens is they put themselves in the same category multiple times with only small differences. So they are ~5 of the burger options but with slightly different side dishes and pretend ethnic dressing or maybe sauces on the burger. I suppose they could also change the price point but that seems less common. That crowds out legitimate places. There's also a decent number of cases of existing chain restaurants operating a second menu under a different name to make use of spare capacity which isn't necessarily a problem just a bit unexpected.

            >All the delivery apps have the address of the restaurant. If you choose not to check, that's on you.
            A lot of them hide it under sub-menus nowadays showing you by default only the distance you are away from them or not even showing you that. I always check but most people don't.

            I mean if you want to look at it another way why don't they advertise themselves as being a ghost kitchen with 'from the people who brought you X brand it's Y brand'? Or write some blurb about how their prices are lower but the quality is the same since they don't pay for prime spots or wait staff.

          There's one restaurant in my town that's absolute dogshit and nobody goes to but started like 3 or 4 ghost kitchens out of their own operation. They have their normal burger/shake restaurant, an icecream delivery (only 1L tubs of B&J), a wings/fried chicken "restaurant" (they use the same ingredients as their normal menu) & another smash burger/topped fry "restaurant'. I think they had a pizza thing for a while too. They basically just opened 4 or 5 different "restaurants" with vaguely similar menus all using the same stock/ingredients to trick morons into buying from each of them every week or so until people figured out and they opened a new one.

          The funniest tho was this Paki corner shop that technically had a kitchen in it but wasn't operational. They had a ghost kitchen but they just copy pasted the kebab/chip shop across the street's menu, bought the food from the chip shop and resold it at a markup.

      You can't order food if you're poor - ordering food can lead to being poor, but you can't be poor and order food, it's 2-4 times the price of buying it in person or making it yourself. You are duplicitous, pompous, and quite apropos of a nightingale with an albatross around it's neck for thinking otherwise, you absolute cuckold.

    There have been plenty of delivery-only businesses that either operate out of their kitchen or rent commercial kitchens. A lot of food truck businesses, catering businesses, etc rely on renting commercial kitchens. The concept of a "ghost kitchen" isn't really a thing.

    The worst thing about ghost kitchens is the fact that they don't exist. You can't even order food from them, because they don't exist, like ghosts.

    Yeah. But if you don't notice, what's there to complain about?

    on this topic, there was the widespread problem of Chuck E. Cheese locations operating the fake Pasqually's Pizza delivery brand during the pandemic, and crowding out the delivery platforms with fake business listings for these. I'm sure some other businesses did this too around the country.

    They are obviously complete scams. Anyone who uses them is a fool. But anyone who uses delivery apps is trash anyway so it really doesn't matter.
